Jewelbots are programmable friendship bracelets designed to spark girls’ (and boys’!)
interest in coding. The Jewelbots are the first of its kind, an open source wearable device
where kids dictate the functionality.
Jewelbots do not require internet service or a cell phone. Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends, see when they are nearby and send each other secret messages.
Kids simply connect their Jewelbot to a phone or computer and get started - no prior experience in coding needed!
Jewelbots introduce the basics of coding and once they get the hang of it, they can test their skills with our coding tutorials and exchange with other kids in our online community - sharing their creations, get inspiration and find help when they get stuck.

Jewelbots are the first of its kind, an open source wearable device where kids dictate the functionality.
Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends and assign a color to them. If a friend is nearby the Jewelbot will glow in that color and friends can send secret messages to each other.
We are making a product for kids, and their safety is our number one priority. Jewelbots don’t contain a GPS and we don’t store any personal data of any kind.
Our Online Community provides a safe environment in case kids get stuck. They can get help, share what they have done, and find inspiring code to try for themselves while engaging with their friends.
Our innovative Jewelbots App allows kids without prior coding experience to learn the fundamentals of computer science and to create their own Jewelbots functions.
Jewelbots bring Computer Science education to the next level. Learning how to code with Jewelbots feels like playing with friends. Kids can test their skills with step by step coding challenges and get instant gratification.
For the curious tinkerer, Jewelbots offer the perfect platform to explore what is possible with wearable technology. Using the Arduino IDE, kids can literally make the bracelets do whatever they dream up.
Out of the Box Features
Kids can connect their Jewelbots with each other as a symbol of their friendship. Unlike a traditional friendship bracelet, Jewelbots will glow with and give a short vibration to show when a friend is close by. If all kids of a friend group are together, their Jewelbots will go into "Rainbow party mode". Getting together with friends has never been more fun.
Kids love their secret messages. Jewelbots allow kids to come up with their own set of codes on the fly. Kids can then send a buzz or light message to a buddy across the room or to their complete friend group. Using the free Jewelbots App kids can come up with even more ways to communicate.
Jewelbots come with replaceable charms and bands. Kids can match their style, express their mood and have Jewelbots look different every day. Each Jewelbot comes with two charms and three different bands. We offer additional styles and colors so there is a Jewelbot for everyone.
No Phone or Computer required for all out of the box features!
No Prior Experience Needed
Jewelbots are the perfect tool to introduce kids 7-14 to the principles of programming. Jewelbots are perfect for beginners and our open source Arduino IDE offers a full fledged coding experience for pros. Jewelbots use Arduino - a language also taught in many school's educational programs.
Even without prior exposure to code, or help from a parent, kids can learn how to write their own software for their Jewelbots. Our step-by-step tutorials and online courses take kids by the hand, resulting in a quick sense of achievement and motivational boost.
Want to share what you have done? Get inspired and see what's possible with Jewelbots? Our Online Community offers easy step-by-step tutorials, sample code and articles for kids and parents alike. It's a safe, judgement free environment, and the perfect place to meet new friends and engage with likeminded coders.
